Blessing in a backpack provides elementary schoolchildren who are on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program with a backpack of food to take home for 38 weekends during the school year. Backpack food includes easy-to-prepare, ready-to-eat foods, like granola bars, juice boxes, mac & cheese and oatmeal. 100% of your donation goes to feed the children. In addition to providing financial assistance for this ministry, Wesley members serve once a month during the school year to pack the backpacks. Click here to learn more.

Wesley’s Table is a Food Pantry. Currently we are able to provide day old bread, pastries, desserts, and sometimes produce & meat from Ultra & Kroger. With assistance from KCCSI, we are currently ordering monthly from Northern Illinois Food Bank which helps provide additional non-perishable foods. There is no application or other requirement to receive assistance; however we do target the communities of Bradley and Bourbonnais. During the month of April we served 124 un-duplicated persons across 31 households
